Tonight we were sitting down to eat some pasta and my middle said it looked liked worms and so it was officially WORM night. My sweet hubby just rolled with it and a plan was quickly devised. Pasta dinner worms, chocolate pudding w/ gummy worms for dessert, a paper craft garden with brown yarn worms and a fun game of burrowing under sheets layed down across the floor. Lots of laughter and fun. Sometimes you get thrown a curve ball and you've just got to play along.
Last week we had sailboat night and turned the table into our own boat. It was a last minute change from plans but we ended up having a lot of fun. The boys actually thought up the night because of reading our Bible story that morning about the disciples in the boat and Jesus calming the storm. I love when they connect what we are learning in Scripture th
It was a nice day so we decided to take the boys fishing after dinner. The camera got missed in all the hustle and bustle of the last minute decision but we did catch 8 perch and 4 turtles! I loved seeing the boys reaction to a turtle coming up when they thought Daddy had caught a log instead. So glad we seized the moment and made a fun memory.
With Easter right around the corner, we opted for a bunny-themed Family Night. 'HOP to it' is sure to bring lots of fun and laughter to your family.
Hoop and hollar with some family night basketball fun. Excited to find out what our final four will be for dinner and to sport our own special jerseys.
Enjoyed a fun night celebrating St Patrick's Day. Last year, we learned all about shamrocks (Shamrock Night) so this year we had some colorful fun with rainbows and pots of Gold. Thing 1 and Thing 2 love any activity that involves a scavenger hunt so tonight went down as a huge success.
It's a beautiful day so I think we'll stop at a pond we pass on our way home from work. There are ducks there and I have old bread. I think between the two, I can make some ducks really happy AND some boys really happy too. Take some time to make a detour in your routine today.
Equals indoor fun at the Science Museum. We had a trip to the zoo planned but the good mommy in me couldn't justify taking my 3 kids with allergy coughs outdoors when it's cold, sprinkling and wind gusting up to 50mph. Instead, we headed to the Science Museum. I'm super blessed to live in an area that has great activities for the whole family. I encourage you to look around you and find something your town has to offer and check it out this month.
I grew up in the deep South. The bayou of Louisiana where the road is named after your grandpa and everyone knows where you've been before you get home. Part of the fun of growing up was being immersed in tradition of holidays and having lots of fun in the meantime. Any good day was reason for a crawfish boil or get-together. Since next week is officially Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, we had Mardi Gras night. In this current world of political correctness, it makes me chuckle to remember that my High School lunch menu was affected by Lent and other religious holidays...fish on Fridays. I hope you enjoy this night as a fun time together, if for nothing else than to spend a little time learning about someone else's culture.
If you live with a 4 year old, you never know what you are going to get. One day they might act 20, the next it's like they are 2. Right? In the world of a 4 year old, emotions change minute to minute and there's no guarantee what you're going to get. Sometimes as a mom I stand looking in the mirror saying 'i'm really responsible for this little human being? WHAT?!" I can't promise that I'm not going to lose it right now! Let me encourage you that in the eyes of your child, you're the best parent EVER. You don't have to be wonderful in the eyes of anyone else, especially your mom-friends that act like they have it all together. Just be you. When you're spending 5 minutes reading or making dinner or putting on jammies or giving a kiss at bedtime, you are putting a little bit of long-term security in their moment by moment world.
Welcome to Our Family Night Site!
I'm a mom of 4 boys and enjoy the rough and tumble world of adventure it brings me. I'm super blessed to have the support of my husband and he gets the vote for Man of the Year award in my book. We have Family Night one night every week as our chance to be intentional about spending time together. I love my kids, family time and most of all Jesus, my Lord and Saviour. He gives me the ability to be creative so here I am sharing that with you. Enjoy!
